Thank You Water Bureau Emergency Management Team

September 15, 2017

This morning, Nick visited the Portland Water Bureau’s emergency management team at the Emergency Operations Center in SE Portland.

The "Incident Command Team," led by Resource Protection and Planning Director Eddie Campbell with support from Emergency Management Director Jamaal Folsom, has been working long, stressful hours away from their families during the Eagle Creek fire. Nick thanked them for their hard work and dedication.

He also got the latest update on the fire, and the bureau’s coordinated efforts to protect our Bull Run water.

The Water Bureau team works closely with our partners at the US Forest Service and the Oregon Department of Forestry, providing watershed security, mapping, and inter-agency communications support.

You can find the latest updates on the Water Bureau's coordinated efforts on the Eagle Creek fire here.
